  • The Universal Notebook: Intentionally out of touch

    Despite the many ways we are all connected in this wired world of cell phones, e-mail, text messaging, Facebook and Twitter, we are also increasingly out of touch. Or, more to the point, we are only in touch with the privileged few and out of touch with reality. As a journalist, I constant...

  • Letter: Falmouth government is bloated

    Falmouth does not need a larger Town Office; we need fewer people in it. Planning Department salaries are $250,000 a year, not including benefits. In the last five years the department has gone from one planner and one assistant to four planners and one assistant, far more than any other t...
